Has any one heard of bamboo plywood? I was searching the web for good prices on hardwood vaneer plywood and just came up on a mention about bamboo plywood. As I surmised by the small amount of info given is that the core is bamboo, with hardwood vaneer. I have not seen any source for it, but considering the popularity these days of bamboo flooring, it seems like a possiblity for a great new product.
Bamboo grows very fast, and once planted, you never have to replant. When you cut it down it just regrows a new shoot in place of the one that got cut. Some bamboo grows 40’ high in just a couple of years, which compared to growing fir or pine is quite prolific to say the least. Not only that, bamboo is very strong. I saw a picture of a cathedral built completely out of bamboo with vaulted ceiling and all by some artist. It wasn’t a real – permanent structure cathedral- just for an exhibition, but never the less was quite impressive since bamboo is not in most westerners architectural, building vocabulary. But could be coming to a home center near you. Any thoughts or more information?
